Happy Birthday Jamie. I'll see you Saturday.



So here is a section for news and updates, in case you haven’t guessed from the title of the page. It seems a tad ridiculous to create such a section, but then again there are a lot of very boring sites out there. At the very least I can post announcements, shows, things of interest, and create a nice little history for myself. Isn’t that what the Internet is all about: creating endless resources of banality. That and porn.

I’ve been very busy over the past couple months, with BUFF, NYUFF, and the like. It would’ve been nice to have this up before all that stuff came and went, but what can you do? Nothing much planned in the immediate future. Some tentative things are swirling around, but nothing definitive. I’ll keep you posted.
